EMDR Part II

EMDR therapy training is a two-part course. Part 2 of the training is a 20 hour course of study, over 3 days, employing the Part 2 Training Manual authored by Francine Shapiro and published by the EMDR Institute.

The workshop begins with an overview of the training, a review of the EMDR therapeutic approach, the Adaptive Information Processing Model, and practice skills associated with the eight phases of EMDR treatment. These include Client History, Client Preparation, Assessment (structured accessing and measures of target memory), Desensitization (reprocessing the target memory network), Installation, Body Scan, Closure, and Reevaluation.

The entire training is devoted to lectures in the morning and practica in the afternoons. Each practicum session is conducted by a facilitator working with small groups of participants. Part 2 training is necessary for the full therapeutic utilization and understanding of the myriad applications of EMDR therapy.

Objectives of the workshop include:

  • Learn the more proactive version of EMDR therapy necessary for its full effective application
  • Learn how to apply EMDR therapy to a wide range of clinical diagnoses
  • Learn how to handle resistant clients and generic problem issues
  • Learn how to customize the EMDR therapy session to the needs of the client
  • Learn additional strategies for dealing with abreactions and incomplete sessions
  • Learn how to apply EMDR therapy to dissociative disorders, somatic disorders and process phobias
  • Learn specialty applications of the EMDR therapy methodology

Records of Completion will be emailed to all participants of an EMDR therapy Part 2 training after their attendance at the Part 2 training has been confirmed and all 10 required hours of consultation have been completed.

EMDR therapy training is a two-part course. Part 1 of the training consists of a 20-hour course of study, employing the Part 1 Training Manual authored by Francine Shapiro and published by the EMDR Institute.

The course of study is typically presented over a three full day period, beginning with a lecture on the first day, covering an overview of the training, an introduction to the EMDR therapeutic approach, the Adaptive Information Processing Model, and preliminary practice skills. Break times are provided between lectures and for lunch on all 3 days.

EMDR and Autism: A Time Tested Approach - Sherri Paulson

 

Since the introduction of the use of EMDR with autism in 2003 by Ms. Paulson, her adapted protocol has been used with individuals across the spectrum and has been shared with EMDR therapists around the world.

 

 

 

EMDR has made it possible for individuals with even severe autism and other developmental disabilities to process trauma and to reduce symptoms of PTSD, at the same time often reducing the severity of their autism characteristics.

 

 

 

This presentation will include a step-by-step description of how to use EMDR with individuals on the autism spectrum while adhering to the original eight-phase EMDR standard protocol.

 

 

 

The preparation phase can also become a stand-alone program called “Connecting With Self,” useful for children with attachment and trauma related issues.

 

 

 

A poster presentation at EMDRIA Minneapolis in 2016 demonstrated that the positive effects of this adapted protocol for individuals with autism have lasted for one traumatized individual from childhood through adulthood.

 

Traumatology & Stabilization Workshop

Traumatology & Stabilization Workshop description

This one-day workshop (9:00 am – 5:00 pm) includes a morning lecture on traumatology and an afternoon lecture and practicum on stabilization techniques to use with trauma survivors and with people who have experienced chronic stress.

The following will be presented:

  • The psychobiology of how our brains are adapted to manage stress
  • The effects on the body when the brain cannot digest a stressful situation adequately
  • Resiliency factors that promote a healthy response to trauma and chronic stress
  • Factors that lead to the development of PTSD
  • The spectrum of traumatic stress responses – symptoms and behaviors that may arise after an individual has been impacted by a stressful event
  • Stages of trauma treatment
  • Several practical stabilization techniques for self care and to be used with clients

 

Utilization of EMDR with Police and First Responders

 

Men and women put have chosen to put themselves in harm’s way to protect us.  We owe them our gratitude, respect, and the highest quality of service.  Many EMDR therapists will work with police, paramedics or other emergency service personnel are involved in traumatic situations.  Further current critical incidents can trigger past traumatizing experiences, both personal and professional, that need to be dealt with.

 

This Workshop will discuss important elements of the first responder culture and psychology (e.g. how do people go into emergency and dangerous situations that other people run away from), and important treatment considerations to enhance credibility and treatment success. Video material from EMDR treatment sessions of personnel involved in traumatic incidents will illustrate treatment principles.

 

R-TEP/G-TEP

Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) Workshop

A Comprehensive Approach for Early EMDR Intervention

 

The Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) is part of a comprehensive approach to Early EMDR Intervention (EEI).

This workshop incorporates and extends existing protocols within a new conceptual framework, together with additional measures for containment and safety.

Checking for sub-clinical sticking points which can obstruct Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) and don’t necessarily show up on the DSM radar,

the R-TEP may reduce sensitization and accumulation of trauma memories.

 

R-TEP Workshop will be taught with video case illustrations, live demonstration and a practicum.

 

 

 

G-TEP Workshop - EMDR Group-Traumatic Episode Protocol (Elan Shapiro): A group adaption of the

R-TEP (Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol)

 

 

The accessibility of EMDR therapy in emergency and disaster situations is often limited by the shortage of trained clinicians  immediately available when relatively large numbers of

trauma victims are involved. This workshop gives a brief  overview of the Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) and presents the G-TEP, this new practical group application, with its unique worksheet format for simplified utilization in emergency situations. The G-TEP will be taught with video illustrations and a practice. The EMDR R-TEP and G-TEP have shown  beneficial results in controlled studies conducted by Turkish colleagues working with Syrian refugees.
